The power of multivariate data analysis in uncovering the nuances in complex data sets

Sean Hart

LumaCyte’s Radiance instrument, employs proprietary artificial cells for calibration that more closely mimic the properties and behavior of cells than do the solid core polystyrene beads typically used for particle measurement and calibration in other instruments. Examine data from three different artificial cell types based upon polystyrene (PS) and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) but they are not solid beads and therefore have a lower refractive index that is much closer to mammalian cells, making them suitable for calibration in the Radiance instrument.

Spring Back to ISBiotech 2018, Norfolk, Va.

Sean Hart

Earlier this month, two members of the LumaCyte team attended and presented at the 8th annual ISBiotech Spring meeting. The meeting was organized into 3 concurrent tracks, Viral Vectors and Vaccines, Cell Therapy, and Baculovirus Expression Technology. Although all the talks were high quality, we have highlighted a few of our favorites.

Macrophages: The First Responder

Sean Hart

One of the first responders at any infection or injury site in a host are macrophages. A type of white blood cell, macrophages contribute to the innate immune system by rapidly fighting infections in a non-specific way and “teach” the adaptive immune system...

The Ab Dilemma: What Have We Learned and Where are We Going?

Sean Hart

Let’s go back to the basics for a moment and talk about antibodies (Abs). Active and passive Ab immunization has saved millions of lives over the years with therapies that, respectively, induce our own immune system to produce target-specific antibodies, or that harness the quick action and effective power of another’s.

Why Measurement of Viral Infectivity Matters and How to Improve It

Keya Rodrigues

Viral quantification involves the counting of viruses or viral molecules in a known volume to determine their concentration. It plays an essential role in studies carried out in the fields of recombinant protein production, viral vaccine production and infectious disease.
